Nobel -Prize-Winning Breakthrough May Make Memory Problems a Thing of the Past

04/03/2019 - 10:35am

An article I read recently by Dr. Frank Shallenberger on a Nobel Prize winning scientist grabbed my attention.  Although this article  pertains to all of us,  if you suffer from memory problems,  it may be the most exciting news you read this year. Not long ago, Rita Levi-Montalcini celebrated her 103rd birthday. During the festivities she made a speech.  She said: "my mental capacity is greater today than when I was 20." Normally when I read a story like this,  I smile and I say "God bless her."  And then I turn the page. But in this case, I took Rita's comm...

Tired of Problems “Down There”?

02/12/2019 - 1:33pm

We are talking UTIs, yeast infections, dryness, low libido hormone imbalances…the list goes on and on. Recurring gynecological problems aren’t just a bother…they can really get in the way of leading a happy, healthy, productive life.  In fact, gynecological issues can contribute to emotional trouble, relationship/intimacy problems, and physical issues (for example, yeast infections and UTIs don’t mix well with exercise). While almost all women deal with some sort of gynecological issue during their lifetime, the problems really start to get in the way when they are recurring.  While...

While these are great goals for the New Year, choosing a gym or a trainer, for those of us over 40 or those of us suffering with musculo-skeletal aches and pains, a regular gym may not be our best choice. For those who wish to remain physically active the rest of their lives, life can get in the way; statistically: 8 out of 10 will develop back pain, 7 out of 10 shoulder instability, and 5 out of 10 hip or knee pain.  Eventually, these statistics can lead to surgery or disability.  So how can we mitigate these facts?  Let's see what Terri B. chose to do, in her own words. "After...

Staying Fit after 40

4 ways your workout should change after you turn 40.... "There's no getting around biology: with the passage of time, we all become a little stiffer, squishier, and wobblier.  That said, the 40-something you, can be as strong as ever."  This is the message claimed by Vonda Wright, MD, an orthopedic surgeon and mobility specialist, in a recent TIME article.  The trick she says, is exercising smarter.

“Baby, Its Cold Outside”…and so is my libido

11/29/2018 - 2:21pm

Spark up a ‘merry and bright’ romance for the holidays and 2019! Whether it’s the mistletoe, crackling fireplace, or bringing in the New Year …there’s something about the holidays that lends itself to romance.  But, for many women (48.2%…to be exact), female sexual dysfunction (the female equivalent of erectile dysfunction) is a barricade to a healthy sex life.  A lot of times we chalk up our decreased libido to “a normal part of aging” or “being married a long time…losing that honeymoon feeling,”; however, if it’s bothering you and you wish that you could get that “spark” back…you c...

11/01/2018 - 12:49pm

Exercise is just as good for the brain as it is for the body. “Back in the day, the majority of exercise studies focused on the parts of the body from the neck down, like the heart and lungs,” says Dr. Ozioma Okonkwo, assistant professor of medicine at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health. “But now we are finding that we need to go north, to the brain, to show the true benefits of a physically active lifestyle on an individual.” How does exercise work to increase brain function? “Exercise likely improves brain health through a variety of ways. It makes the heart bea...
